This paper demonstrates the development of a multimedia courseware that can be used to educate children with Learning Disabilities (LD). The use of game-based courseware could help those with LD to explore their capabilities without having to pressure them to catch up with other friend but to let them learn in their own pace of time. The courseware can be used as a medium to educate children with LD, to stimulate their psycho-motor for using the computer and also to develop their thinking skills while having fun playing the games. At the same time, this courseware might encourage the teachers and parents to improvise their ICT skills and hands-on learning as a learning tool. It was developed using Visual Basic, Adobe Photoshop and MP3 Wav converter. The courseware is known as Playtime Learning consists of Play games and Fun activities. The user acceptance test shows that teachers and students could adapt well with this kind of learning tool and they have shown positive sign of interest in utilizing it in the future.
